Living conditions are very poor, and thousands of children have lost one or both of their parents. However, Acres of Hope is growing and gaining ground on providing for the needs of Uganda's most war-torn children.

We established a trusting relationship with with Pastor Geoffrey over 5 years ago and continue to work hand in hand with he and his staff. We seek to let the locals on the ground lead and have an open heart to serve as needed. Our goal is to continue to build strong relationships, contribute financially, and support their sustainability efforts.
